    If you give a funny rating (PT Car Washer) to a post that isn't funny, at least comment on what you think is funny. Just for curiosity sake.

    Yup. The next house I buy her will be a foreclosure in the hood

    A delivery driver with a strong back and a weak mind thinks he is entitled to a half million Dollar house and a million Dollar retirement account. I know it is doable, (sitting pretty myself) but is it realistic and sustainable?

    Who said anything about entitlement? I'm more than thankful for what I make and I realize how good it is. Seems like you misconstrued everything I said.

    The cost of the things I was discussing is just that. Talking about how much stuff costs. And that even good money can go really fast.

    Right now, I'm planning on moving this year out of the city for my kids to have better schooling and a nice neighborhood to grow up in. $200K income and I'm still living in a lower income neighborhood. That's why I'm aware of how much homes are going for because I'm looking. I'm saying a $500K home is middle of the road here. Doesn't mean I'm saying I deserve it or whatever. Under $300K is a mediocre neighborhood, or a fixer-upper, or small.

    My house was 207k and it's a good neighborhood and middle of the road house in retrospect, you must live on the east or west coast if 500k is middle of the road for houses.

    Also my house was brand new when I bought it in 2016, supposedly my neighbor down the street that had the same house as me just sold his for 246k not bad for sitting on it for 3 years and making 40k.

    Yeah, $200K is nearly ghetto here. I'm on the New England coast. What's fun is we make the same.

  8. I'd say planning on a million dollar retirement account is a lot more realistic and sustainable than counting on a pension ponzi payment that depends on future contributions in an industry facing massive automation.

    Cheers!

    Yeah here in the midwest a 200 to 300k house is middle of the road, 500k is higher end were I deliver.

    We can't even find a 200k house here. :)

    A 200k house in NC and your living like a god

    $200 to $300k would buy you a McMansion in a gated golf community in the midwest.

    Too bad you don't live out there. PT workers making $13 a hour would be living like kings.
     
  14. 300k will get you a mansion here, as long as you don't mind wasting a whole lot of your life on a 30-45 minute commute.

    Seems stupid to me, but a lot of people think otherwise around here.

    How about PT making $35/hr?

    Not really maybe in Texas, what part of the midwest do you live in? North Dakota?
     
  18. 200k by me is a studio Coop in an undesierable part of town with 1450 a month maintenance on top of the mortgage!

    My electric/gas bill alone is that much or more depending on season.
